Independent Study in Psychological Research
Students interested in learning more about psychological research should consider enrolling in an Independent Study through the ETSU Psychology Department. The Laboratory of Resilience in Psychological and Physical Health is always looking for motivated and qualified students to assist with ongoing research projects. To be eligible, you must have a 3.25 GPA or higher, must be able to commit to at least two semesters working in the lab, must have room in your schedule for 1 or more hours of Independent Study credit, and must have a strong desire to attend graduate school. Research assistants in the LRPPH assist with data collection, data entry and data analysis, with conceptualization of new studies, present their research at professional conferences, and may have the opportunity to publish their research in a peer-reviewed journal. If you are interested in interviewing for an undergraduate research assistant position with the LRPPH, please contact Dr. Hirsch.
